Classical Arabic Philology and Poetry: A Bibliographical Handbook of Important Editions from 1960 to 2000 (Handbook of Oriental Studies) ( 2002 )
This concise bilingual bibliography is a comprehensive list of Classical Arabic texts on grammar, lexicography, adab, balagha, metrics and poetry, which have been edited from 1960 to 2000. Featuring about 1300 authors and more than 4000 text editions this reference work is intended to serve as a supplement to Brockelmann’s GAL and to Sezgin’s GAS. Research is facilitated by indices of titles and modern editors. As this handbook is unique in its kind it will be a basic source of information for Arabists and scholars of other Semitic languages and literatures.’
‘Nul doute que cet instrument bibliographique rendra d’eminents services aux specialistes…nul doute qu’il trouve rapidement la place qui lui revient, sur les rayons de nos bibliotheques, aux cotes de GAL et de GAS.’ Pierre Larcher, Revue des mondes musulmans et de la Mediterranee, 2002.
